Today, the Florida House took important steps toward ensuring Florida’s students are able to compete in a 21st century global economy by passing SB 1642, a Florida Chamber-backed education bill that creates a transparent A-F school grading system for Florida’s K-12 schools.

Florida’s future depends on a talented workforce that can compete in a global economy, and a stable education system is an essential tool to help prepare this workforce. SB 1642 improves Florida’s A-F school grading system to help ensure teachers and students are accurately assessed. This bipartisan effort to develop a transparent A-F grading system will allow Florida to ensure the quality of our schools.

The Florida Chamber will continue to advocate for a quality education and workforce development system. We believe that a strong sustainable education system is integral to Florida’s long-term economic development strategy.
